In jewellery classes you will learn to make traditional and contemporary pieces such as rings, bangles, pendants and earrings using sheet metal and wire. I teach the basic methods of sawing, drilling, filing and finishing metal. There’s plenty of time to practise these skills as we progress through the projects.
With over 20 years experience in making jewellery and many years of teaching jewellery I can expertly guide you through your course resulting in finished pieces of jewellery that you’ll be proud of.
I run small jewellery classes (maximum of 5 students) that ensure that you’ll move quickly through the projects. Our home workshop provides a relaxed suburban setting in which to nurture your new skills.
I have classes suitable for complete beginners through to more advanced makers and I run classes both in daytime and evening timeslots. I can also tailor a course to suit your particular needs, for example, corporate team-building events and folio development.
